As we already reported, yesterday Elon Musk presented a fresh prototype of the Optimus humanoid robot, details of which were published by Slashgear.

The robot is able to move all fingers independently, and there are sensors in the fingers for feedback and control of the grip force. The robot will be able to keep track of what it is holding. The arms have 27 degrees of freedom, the body – more than 200. At the same time, the robot weighs about 73 kg and consumes 100 watts in a sitting position and 500 watts when walking.

The heart of Optimus is a single-chip system developed by Tesla. He received Wi-Fi and LTE modules for a permanent connection to the Web. The 2.4 kWh battery is also designed by Tesla and is built into the Optimus’ chest.

The charge is expected to last a full day, though it’s unclear at this stage how much work the Optimus can handle. Elon Musk acknowledged that Tesla still has a lot of work to do to improve and refine the Optimus.

However, the Tesla CEO is enthusiastic about the potential: “Our goal is to build a useful humanoid robot as soon as possible. We plan to produce robots in large volumes, with low cost and high reliability.”

The biggest surprise is pricing, where Musk is very ambitious: “It’s expected to cost a lot less than a car.” Probably less than $20,000 is my guess. This is significantly less than even the cheapest Tesla car.”

Musk said the robot’s knee joint is inspired by human knees. Tesla also conducts crash tests, similar to those its cars go through, to make sure that any damage to the robot from a fall will only be superficial.

Volkswagen in talks with Foxconn to build cars for the Scout brand

Back in May, Volkswagen said it planned to reintroduce the Scout brand, creating a separate independent company to produce trucks and SUVs. The launch of sales in the US is planned for 2026.

In turn, Foxconn expanded the production of electric vehicles for automotive brands, hoping to occupy 5% of this market by 2025.

For now, both companies have declined to comment on the topic. However, according to the source, Volkswagen is also in talks with Magna Steyr, a subsidiary of Magna International, which plans to build a plant in the US. Perhaps this is where the new Scout cars will be produced.

Previously, Volkswagen showed the concept of a futuristic unmanned electric vehicle for traveling.

He continues to lie after 15 years Tesla founder criticized

According to Business Insider, Elon Musk said that Martin Eberhard, one of the founders of Tesla, did not risk his money when creating the company’s first car.

I was the head of the product department and led the design of the original Roadster. Eberhard was rich and could have risked his money, but he didn’t want to.

Elon Musk

Musk has previously been accused of simply “crowding out” Tesla founders Eberhard and Mark Tarpenning and “spent the next ten years telling everyone he founded Tesla.”

“He continues to lie after 15 years,” Tesla founder criticized Elon Musk.  The billionaire replied

At the same time, Elon Musk himself said that he was directly involved in the creation of the Roadster, and also registered the Tesla Motors trademark and tesla.com address.

This is not true. The fact that he continues to lie about me 15 years after I left Tesla fully shows his nature.

Martin Eberhard

Eberhard and Tarpenning founded the company in 2003. Musk, who had money when he sold PayPal, funded the company with $6.5 million and joined Tesla’s board of directors as chairman. Prior to this, Eberhard had introduced Tesla to him via email as “a company with very high potential for growth.”

Tesla introduced its first car in 2006, at the same time Eberhard was called “Mr. Tesla.” Musk was hurt by the lack of media coverage of his involvement in the development of Tesla. Then Eberhard for the first time seriously argued with Musk, but not the last time.

“He continues to lie after 15 years,” Tesla founder criticized Elon Musk.  The billionaire replied

Musk, who officially became the company’s CEO in 2008, has repeatedly spoken disparagingly of Eberhard. Musk said last year that Eberhard was “by far the worst person Musk has ever worked with in his entire career,” adding that the co-founder was “close to killing Tesla.”

The company is setting production records for the third month in a row, while the entire automotive industry is still trying to overcome the chip shortage problem that has prevented it from operating normally for the last year.

The Japanese automaker produced 771,382 vehicles across all of its plants in October, more than the target of 750,000 units.

Growth slowed after a record production of over 887,000 vehicles in September. That being said, Toyota continues to face supply chain disruptions as China imposes lockdowns due to COVID-19.

As we have already reported, lockdowns and other restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19, implemented in many parts of China, have affected Honda, Yamaha and other Japanese manufacturers.
